Lawn Aeration Service vs. Dethatching a Lawn
In our industry, core aeration and dethatching are typical processes; however, we hear lots of inquires like that from Easton homeowners who wish to understand the ideal method of maintaining their turf’s health.
Red Carpet Landscaping focuses on the value of what’s referred to as curative practices, meaning we tend to the plant’s root needs and assuring that the soil is rich in nutrients, and an abundance of water and oxygen is able to reach the roots of the plants. Aeration and dethatching are services which both stimulate the lawn’s health, yet the reason for every practice is completely different.
Lawn Dethatching: When should you do it?
A lawn has 3 layers: roots under the soil, green grass that is above the ground and, within the middle, a thatch layer comprising of roots, stems, and leaves. The thatch material is natural, as well as healthy in moderation. However, a thick layer of thatch may prevent nutrients, water, and air from getting to the roots of the grass.
Essentially, dethatching combs the layer of thatch out so it may be extracted from a lawn. Dethatching machines that have blades will tear away the layer of thatch and bring organic matter out to the surface in order for it to be raked by hand off of the lawn.
When Should You Dethatch a Lawn?
Lawns that need dethatching feel bouncy and spongy. Look at your grass. Are you able to see a growth layer in between the roots and green shoots? If you can, is the thatch loose enough to push using a finger, or is the thatch tough and thick, and creates a barrier between the soil and grass blades?
An expert landscape company might remove a small grass wedge to measure the thickness of thatch. In general, we advise dethatching as thatch is thicker than 3/4 of one inch.
Dethatching will be performed only as necessary and is site specific. Plus, because of the 2-step dethatching process and requirement of manually having to rake the thatch off the lawn the service is costlier than aerating.
Lawn aeration in Easton includes removing soil and grass plugs so adequate nutrients, water, and air may seep inside the ground, as well as get to the roots of the plants. As you aerate the lawn, you essentially are punching holes inside the ground in order for it to air out.
The procedure is done with a machine referred to as an aerator which perforates a lawn and pulls plugs of turf up. Those cores are left upon the lawn in order to decompose they’ll return nutrients that are beneficial to the home.
If you browse a turf plug that is pulled from the ground within the process of aeration, you will see the soil, roots, thatch layer, and green grass blades.
Does Your Home Require Lawn Aeration Services?
Aeration may prevent your lawn from being compacted, and as this occurs soil particles don’t permit correct nutrients to get to plant roots. You will know the lawn must be aerated if its soil becomes compacted.
Red Carpet Landscaping recommends lawn aeration be done on a yearly basis, within the fall or spring.
The landscape is an excellent asset to a property and we’ll work diligently to protect that investment.
